Eric Chemi on the Alabama “mistake” that led to the Auburn loss:

Consider this grim reality: A college football player is far more likely to die in a game than ever see a missed field goal returned for a touchdown.

In numerical form, just how against-the-odds was that return? On the FG-try, Alabama was facing these odds:

• 36 percent chance of winning

• 64 percent chance of going to overtime

• 0.007 percent chance of losing

Bond, James Bond wins again.
